Do you want to know if your carrier is violating net neutrality? Wehe tells you if this is the case, and how much they are slowing down (or speeding up) specific apps.
By running these tests, you will also help us create a public database of carrier behavior worldwide. This can help you decide which carrier to use in the future, based on the performance they give to your favorite apps.
Help inform the net neutrality debate by downloading and running our app! More details about the app at http://dd.meddle.mobi.
This app is developed by researchers from Northeastern University and The University of Massachusetts Amherst.
Please excuse us if you encountered any bugs or crashes. We tried our best to make this app stable, and all crashes will be sent to our server for future improvement. No personal information will be included in the report.
Please be aware that this app might not support your carrier if it uses a network device that interferes with our tests. For more information, please check out our website!
Ratings and Reviews
It does what it says it does
You run tests and the developer harvests the information from you. The UI/UX leaves much to be desired. At the end of the day it’s just a research tool. It’s not really a consumer product. (At this moment.)
After all the news surrounding Apple not approving the app initially I can see why it would be flagged. It took a bit too long to figure out what the heck this actually does. Improvements to the interface and any type of new user onboarding would help.
Love idea But...
It doesn’t always work. But I believe it’s due to the unanticipated heavy traffic after publicity they got when Apple refused to accept the wehe app initially. It’s working better now after I think they updated server to handle more traffic. But it’s an excellent concept, I just hope they add more apps to tests. But thank you to everyone involved because it’s a very important project to track net neutrality abusers like Facebook, google, Verizon, Comcast, AT&T, Charter / Spectrum, LinkedIn, etc
5 Star All The Way
This app gives you an easy way to check if you are being limited by your internet provider. More importantly, the aggregated results will finally give people a way to see what companies are throttling people’s content and what ones are respecting net neutrality.
The app was created by a researcher funded by the national science foundation which will provide unbiased answers.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
